SHARK SAFETY AT THE CAPE!!!
Hey Everyone, I noticed that many of my friends were being unsafe at the Cape this summer while enjoying the water. I did some research and came up with a shirt that reminds everyone what we can do to stay safer while enjoying the water. It parallels the suggestions by the National Seashore and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. As the seals return to the Cape, the ecosystem will come back into balance as the sharks return. They have been honing their carnivore nature for millions of years. We cannot change their behavior so we must change ours. Here are some easy ways to keep SAFER!

All profits from the sale of t-shirts will go to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy!

I had the real pleasure to watch these endangered piping plovers at Head of the Meadow beach in Truro.
There is only about 4,000 of them in the world.
Now, 4,000 and 2!

Nature Nerd Rule!
Dateline: First Fall weekend in 2017-
I had one of the greatest Nature Nerds weekends! On Saturday, I participated in the Bio Blitz at the Mount Tom Reservation. It was a dream come true, naturalists from all over the region came to survey all the living organism in the Reservation. Tom Tyning, the incredible naturalist from Berkshire Community College found a rattlesnake and brought it back for a check-in. Here is the full feature video of the rattlesnake. Check out my blog page for some pictures (click here)!

Featured Video: The Bobcat! This is the first in a series of video shorts exploring the wildlife of Western Massachusetts. With the help of my fellow nature nerd friends, we will focus on the natural history, as well as, how to identify their tracks in the forest, fields, and maybe in your own backyard. First up, my good friend and fellow nature nerd Tom Gagnon helps me to explore the incredible Bobcat! Check out my blog posting for pictures.
Featured Video: Butterflies of the Bullitt
There is a little piece of heaven in the hills of Ashfield, Massachusetts. Its the Bullitt Reservation owned and managed by The Trustees. Over the course of the summer, my Nature Nerd friends and I visited the fields of this incredible conservation area to chase butterflies, in order to photograph and videotape their spectacular lives. This is their story. Below are some pictures that are included in the video. Click on them to enlarge.
